Stumptown Coffee Roasters
Panama Don Pachi Estate Geisha
|Roaster Location:||Portland, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Boquete growing district, western Panama|
|Review Date:||August 2005|
Exceptional aroma: floral notes complicated by vanilla for co-cupper Rodger Owen and lemon and pineapple for Ken. In the cup brightly but sweetly acidy and delicately smooth in mouthfeel with a subtly balanced flavor that disappointed Rodger but excited Ken with its jasmine-like floral notes and (for Ken at least) a rich, chocolaty lemon.
Produced from trees of the Geisha variety of arabica, a variety with Ethiopian parentage that in the Boquete region of Panama appears to produce a lyrically soft, subtle version of the great floral and citrus wet-processed coffees of Ethiopia. Stumptown Coffee is a small-batch premium roasting company that wholesales its coffees as well as serves them in French press format in its three Portland cafes.
